Hand & Upper Extremity

Hand & Upper Extremity Surgery

The hand is a unique area of the human body that is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the hand to function well.

The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the hand.

Our faculty has developed expert experience in pediatric and adult upper extremity and hand surgery. Our fellowship trained and certified hand and plastic surgeons can provide comprehensive care for trauma, congenital and elective surgery.

Not all problems treated by a hand surgeon need surgery. Hand surgeons often recommend non-surgical treatments, such as medication, splints, therapy, or injections.

If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or arm, or if you have other upper-extremity related concerns, you may want to consult a hand surgeon.
